Dear Lily Sussman: I am sorry to hear that you have been inconvenienced by my country's security procedures. It seems a little brash of the Israel Defense Force to be so hostile and classify you as a possible national threat ONLY because you have controversial anti israeli & antisemitic photographs, Arabic literature and happen to have traveled to several Arabic/Islamic countries prior to landing in Israel. Look, we all feel your pain and frustration but what you must realize is that the safety of an entire people depend on these security checks. If you want to blame anyone, please blame the leaders of the countries you visited since it is their fathers and grand fathers who have forced Israel to resort to extreme security searches. Look on the bright side, your laptop hard drive was purposely saved by the thoughtful security guards and you are receiving a brand new laptop which is an Israeli's way of saying "hey, we have to do what we have to do and thanks for understanding.
